SiC Matrix Polymer and SiC Fibers provide solutions where most other materials fail.
SiC Matrix Polymer can be used for PIP processes (Polymer Infiltration and Pyrolysis) to produce CMCs (Ceramic Matrix Composites) and as SiC coating material for e.g. crucibles and tiles.
SiC Fibers are usually processed into fabrics. Such fabrics are used to preform CMC components. The preforms are infiltrated with SiC Matrix Polymer and heat-treated to produce Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) components. The CMCs are used in harsh operating conditions which consist in most cases of a combination of high-temperature, corrosive, mechanically stressful environments with either limitations on weight of the components or special requirements on longevity and operative reliability of the components.
